Paleo Pancakes

Ingredients:

1/4 cup Coconut Flour

1/8 tsp Baking Soda

Pinch of Salt

1/3 cup Cashew Milk*

2 tbsp Coconut Oil

3 Eggs

1-2 tbsp Honey

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Butter or Coconut Oil for cooking

Instructions:

  1. With one medium bowl and one small bowl, separate egg whites from the yolks. Place the whites in the small bowl and the yolks in the medium bowl. Put small bowl with whites aside.
  2. In the medium sized bowl, mix the melted coconut oil and honey with the separated yolks.
  3. Add the cashew milk and vanilla extract. Mix.
  4. Incorporate the coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Note, do not over mix or beat because you want to preserve the bubbles that the baking soda will create. These bubbles help your pancakes rise and be fluffy.
  5. Remembering the egg whites in the small bowl, whip the whites until stiff peaks form.
  6. Gently fold whites into the batter.
  7. On a hot griddle or pan, melt some butter or oil to coat your cooking surface. This will prevent your pancakes from sticking.
  8. Pour batter onto the hot cooking surface. I used a tablespoon to measure the perfect sized pancakes. Once the batter was on the surface, I spread them into a nicely round shape which were about 1/4 inch thick. Cook pancake 3 minutesĀ or until golden on each side.
  9. ENJOY! Drizzle some homemade chocolate syrup over the top for the MOST DELICIOUS pancakes!

Notes:

*I use Silk’s Unsweetened Vanilla Cashew Milk. Other milks will work as well. For example, you could use almond, coconut, hemp, or whole milk. While you may change the milk, each may change the flavor slightly. I chose cashew milk because I found it to be the creamiest plant-based milk.

San Marcos Farmers Market: 3/4/2017

Despite the rainy, cold weather, today’s farmers market succeeded in drawing people outdoors. Two lovely people purchased a couple of my art pieces. One, a friend whom I grew up with, purchased my sketch of a sleepy fenec fox. The other, a young man from France, purchased my Texas themed drawing which contained many popular Texas slang. In addition, I met some other lovely people who bought some of my baked goods from me. The baked goods sold today were my Original Almond Chocolate Brownie, Almond Vanilla Blondie, and Orange Poppy Seed Loaf. The top seller was the Orange Poppy Seed Loaf. I believe its vegan quality is what sold it to customers. Pertaining to my baked goods customers, one was an old friend who I hadn’t seen in a while; therefore, it was nice catching up. Also, my lovely roommate brought her wonderful parents whom I greatly enjoyed meeting. All-in-all, the San Marcos Farmers Market perseveres through all forms of challenging weather! I cannot wait for more experiences at the next market. Hope to see y’all there:)
